Breaking down barriers


Alan, a former Nightingale Club chairman recalls, “When Camp Hill was subject to a Compulsory Purchase Order to make way for a road widening scheme, the club purchased 10 Witton Lane, Aston. We paid £16,000 pounds for an existing club, the Aston Sporting Club. When the club first opened, the owner of the Holt Public House over the road and local residents were unhappy about a gay club in their area, the club tried to break down fear barriers by inviting him over and he became a regular customer.”

“Witton Lane hosted famous visitors to the city such as Elton John and Freddie Mercury”.
